NeuroTribes: The Legacy of Autism and the Future of Neurodiversity by Steve Silberman. Excellent (and epic) book that spans the history of autism and autism research up through the present. Highly recommended if you’re autistic, know someone with autism (you do, even if you don’t know you do), or wonder how the hell that antivaccine nonsense got started. That said, at times this book felt a bit unfocused as the author got caught up in backstories – a couple of times I wished I’d jotted down a list of names as I read so I could keep everyone sorted out. Perhaps that was just me and my notoriously bad memory. The book still gets five stars because of being both groundbreaking and sensible. 🙂
